NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Lawyers for Attorney General Kathleen Kane have refiled a motion to throw out her criminal charges after an earlier motion was thrown out on a technicality.

Kane’s lawyers made the filing Thursday in Montgomery County court.

Montgomery County Judge Wendy Demchik-Alloy had given Kane’s lawyers 10 days to refile it after saying an April 26 filing didn’t adhere to rules of criminal procedure.

Kane is charged with perjury, obstruction and other counts for allegedly leaking secret grand jury information to a reporter to discredit a rival prosecutor and lying about it under oath.

Kane’s motion says she’s the victim of “selective and vindictive prosecution” in an “extraordinary” leak prosecution. Prosecutors say the claims are frivolous and want the judge to reject them.

Trial is scheduled for Aug. 8.
